Cottage Rose Paper Tole Get Well for Freshly Made Sketches

I'm so excited to play with the Freshly Made Sketches gang again! It's been so long! And they have such an intriguing sketch this week that caught my eye. Take a look:

fms #544
Isn't that unique? Anyway, I don't know if it was the sketch or a design team sample that inspired me, but I decided to go vintage and got out my Abigail Rose Suite from the Annual Catalogue! I needed a get well card for a friend who has just had surgery and the Cottage Rose stamp set has a nice "feel better" sentiment with it as well as those lovely wild roses. Here's my fully distressed and antiqued design:

  • I took a piece of the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and distressed it using a bone folder, distressing tool from long ago, and a blending brush to add some Soft Suede ink to the edges to give it that vintage look. I mounted it on a layer of Early Espresso to back it and added a piece of the Natural Finish Ribbon and then adhered it on a card base of Petal Pink cardstock. 
  • I used 2 different designs of the Abigail Rose DSP for the 2 small panels from the sketch, distressing each of them a little and mounting them over the ribbon at different angles, as per the sketch.
  • With Gray Granite ink, I stamped the medium sized rose from the stamp set 3 times and coloured it in using the Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Combo. This flower has 3 layers of petals. I fussy cut out the top layer on one flower, the top two layers on the second flower and the whole flower on the third.
  • Using the large stylus end of the Take Your Pick Tool and the Stampin' Pierce Mat, I gently embossed the petals of each layer of petals depending on whether they would be curving outward or inward. Then I assembled the flower as in paper tole, using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, layering the pieces largest to smallest, matching lines.
  • I stamped the leaves in Gray Granite and coloured them in using the Gray Granite Stampin' Blends Combo, then fussy cut them and adhered them to the small panels as shown with Glue Dots. I die cut some extra sprigs from the Vellum Layering Designs using the Natural Prints dies and secured them over the leaves using Glue Dots.
  • I finally added the paper tole rose, also using Glue Dots.
  • The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes dies. It was also added with a glue dot and curved up at one end using the bone folder.

This was the result of July's Paper Pumpkin kit. I was so excited to get the kit yesterday and I put the cards together last night! I didn't change much except the sentiment in some cases because they are so perfect for my taste! (You know I love the ocean and beachy stuff!) There's another beautiful one coming in August involving sunflowers! You should really get on it! Subscribe by August 10th to get it, but it looks like it will be well worth it. (PS It's easy to unsubscribe or pause your subscription, unlike some things you subscribe to!) Check this out:
